Recognizing and Responding to Children’s Grief

speaking grief

Wednesday, April 28, 7:00–8:00 p.m. (EDT)

We’re living in a time of unprecedented communal grief and children are not immune. But children’s grief doesn’t always look the same as adult grief. In this webinar, experts will discuss some of the ways children’s grief can manifest and provide guidance on how to respond and support grieving children. They’ll also address how misidentifying a grief response can negatively impact children—especially those from marginalized populations. Qualifies for Pennsylvania Act 48 continuing education hours.

This webinar is a collaboration between two WPSU initiatives: Speaking Grief, which was created with philanthropic support from the New York Life Foundation, and Learning at Home, which is funded by a Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) grant.
